Prov­i­dence Group is part of a sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment ini­tia­tive in the vil­lage of Bulembu, Swazi­land.

The for­mer African min­ing town went bank­rupt in the early 1990s. To­day, the com­mu­nity is be­ing helped back on its feet, with a fo­cus on cre­at­ing a fu­ture for chil­dren or­phaned by AIDS.

Prov­i­dence Group is sup­port­ing the pur­chase of equip­ment for a yo­gurt and dairy juice blend­ing fa­cil­ity that builds on an ex­ist­ing lo­cal dairy busi­ness, a new din­ing hall for 200 or­phaned chil­dren and two new classrooms for a high school. Visit bulembu.org
